International bike-theft ring uncovered in Italy
Police surprise packed truck headed for Morocco10 September, 14:26
That confrontation led to a series of leads police followed through surveillance that enabled investigators to identify a garage where a Moroccan immigrant had parked a truck loaded with dismantled and packaged bicycles.
Police seized 30 bicycles, all robbed from German tourists in Lake Garda, which investigators say the Moroccan man was ready to truck through France and Spain with Morocco as the final destination. The Moroccan man was arrested for receiving stolen goods.
Investigators are continuing their investigation to better understand the total number of bicycles shipped off to Morocco, which they suspect may be considerable.
